Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son releases later this year on PlayStation VR, Vive, and Oculus.
1886 was the first recorded year that Groundhog Day was celebrated in Punxsutawney, according to the local newspaper.
For the past 133 years, Punxsutawney's famous, weather-forecasting groundhog, Phil, has been fetched from his burrow mid-winter February 2 by members of the Inner Circle and raised overhead his thousands of worldwide followers who rely upon his prediction.
What does the official Groundhog Day website say?
Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow on February 2, 2019, so spring is coming early this year.
Traditionally, Groundhog Day helped people to predict the weather for the year ahead.
A statement on their website states: "Punxsutawney Phil is the only true weather forecasting groundhog". If he doesn't see his shadow, an early spring is in the forecast. As the Midwest and East Coast try to recover from this week‚Äôs unsafe Arctic blast, Pennsylvania‚Äôs most famous groundhog is gearing up to reveal whether an early spring is on the way or if winter will stick around.
Other towns have their own groundhog mascots as well, including Birmingham Bill in Alabama and Staten Island Chuck in NY. During this time, their heartbeats slow down, their body temperatures drop and they lose roughly 30 percent of their body fat.
Despite Phil and other groundhogs' predictions of an early spring, meteorologists said the groundhogs do not have an advantage in predicting the weather during the past few years.
According to members of the Groundhog Club, Phil, after making the prediction, chatters to the club's president in "Groundhogese".
